In one scene there's a sign stating that the train is crossing the border from Germany to Slovakia. Problem is, the German on the sign is not correct. It says "Achtung, Sie übergehen die Grenze Slowakei", which literally translates to "Caution, you are crossing the border Slovakia". Instead it should read "Achtung, Sie überqueren die Grenze zur Slowakei". Furthermore, the word "übergehen" is indeed a German word, but would not be used in this context. See more »
...that's best viewed in a beer induced stupor or under mind numbing medication. The impossible plot contrivances are standard issue for low grade action movies (i.e. our hero is tossed off a bullet train by the bad guys...but he's evidently wearing magnetic underwear, as he miraculously manages to hang on).
The action sequences are undermined by quick cuts,dropped frames,and split screens. (This chop chop style belongs is better suited for a Japanese Steak house).
Overall, though, it's not a bad time waster that's over before it becomes too tedious. With low expectations, you might enjoy it.
